For the Alameusians, Sound represents the realm of the invisible. Both the visible/physical and the invisible/metaphysical are sacred expressions of energy, the one substance that constitutes reality.

Sound was seen as the messenger of everything immaterial and invisible, spirits, souls, which live outside time. Music and sound were used to communicate with spirits, ask for guidance, divinate the future and curry the favors of the Gods. Given the central role of Sound in the Alameusian culture, it is perhaps surprising that researchers have found no trace of music instruments. Historians believe that music was mostly channeled through voice and chanting.

Archeological findings at Alameus include four intact multi-necked jugs. These objects resemble instruments, but their functional significance is unclear. Researchers believe that they had a ritual or religious use, perhaps symbolizing the power of the ruling priestesses.
